    Hi,

    What's their tag line? "We are not waiting."

    I'm finding it a pretty stable app on my old Note 4 with a Libre & Miaomiao 2.

    I only dreamt of this stuff when I was a kid pee testing. & I thought meters were civilised when I was handed one..

    Beam me up!

    Oh yes the good old day's, I used to hide the fact I was a diabetic, I could not see how anybody would go out with me if they knew about me being a diabetic and having to do all these urine tests and inject with long needles and the glass syringe but I got over that after a year or so and decided it was a part of who I was that was 51 year's ago, miao miao, xdrip is not the finnishing line but we are getting there

    Hi,

    I'm sorry the early days left you feeling this way.. I was diagnosed in 1976, pee testing was my "dirty secret" as a lad.
    But courting? The needles I found gave me a bit of an "edge?" If I fronted it...
